Austin Aozora Hattori
A.B. Classical Languages, University of Georgia
Before coming to the University of Cincinnati, Austin was an undergraduate at the University of Georgia. His undergraduate thesis, "The Rhetoric of Ariadne and the Construction of the Catullan Ego," discussed the role of rhetoric in ekphrasis and how rhetoric links the poetic voice with Ariadne in Carmen 64.
He is primarily interested in Latin poetry of the late Republican and Augustan eras. Areas of research include narratology, semiotics, and the relationship between text and image.
